Interview Model Nana Thomsen (Denmark)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Nana Thomsen and I’m 21 years old. I’m from Denmark, and I’ve many model contracts but my mother agency is BornModels as it is now.
As a child, I’ve been absolute football obsessed and I still am. I love being active but I can honestly tell that playing some computer and eat a slide of cake during my travelling is also my thing. ;)
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
If I could change whatever I wanted, I’d change my bad habit from staying up too late and instead head off to bed earlier.
How did you start modeling?
I started as a child, I was about 14 years old the very first time and got hooked on to it.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Working as a model can challenging when it comes to staying in touch with friends and family because there can be much travelling but the job is worth it. It’s an amazing job, it’s funny and being able to work with many different people across the world, and seeing different cultures while working is great.
What is your beauty regimen?
I’ve got a good skin care tip. - Toothpaste for pimples is brilliant, let it dry out and it’ll be disappearing fast. ;)
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I’m straight away, there’s no in-between with me. I say things as they are and let people know what I think. I’m also very careful for my family and friends. Like I’ve always said, family comes first.
What are your plans for the future?
Work, work, work. – But also, taking an education in medicine. I think it’s very important to think things through twice and have a backup plan besides the modelling.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I truly love Calvin Klein, and shooting their underwear is amazing.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Start as soon as possible. If you under 18 then don’t forget to have your parents with you. Ask your mother, brother or friend to take some neutral photos of you and start applying to the model agencies you’d like to have a contract with. Don’t be sad if some of them turn you don’t, it’s nothing personal. Just apply for another, but make sure that you’re the proper height that the agency requires before you’re applying. Stay you through the whole thing, cause don’t forget, it’s nothing but a job.
What do you think of the magazine?
This magazine is more than just fine, it’s brilliant. I like it.
